Welcome to the National Society of Pershing Rifles, Company M-4 of App State University!

We are a national, military-oriented fraternity focused on both brotherhood and military drill and ceremony.  Company M-4 is the face of all military events and presence on App State's campus, participating colorguards at all home football games at The Rock, Homecoming parades and other formal military events hosted on campus.

We compete annually in the spring at the PR National Convention (NATCON).  Company M-4 currently holds 13 national titles from NATCON, making it the most winning Pershing Rifles Company. 

Although most members of our organization are military or ROTC cadets, we welcome any students, including non-military, who are interested in what we do!
